About This Activity

Are you tired of running your weekend 5k and seeing the same 3 people win every time? Are you ready for a new kind of 5k in Gainesville? Do you know your body well enough that you can predict your pace over the course of 3.1 miles? Have you developed an internal metronome from all those childhood piano lessons so you can set a perfect pace? Does playing the lottery seem like child’s play to you? Do you possess certain psychic abilities? Any of these things can give you an advantage in the PR 5k!! No, PR does not mean Personal Record, this is all about the Prediction Run.

Kick off the racing season with a 5k run in which you predict your finishing time. It doesn’t matter who is the fastest, this race is all about leveling out the playing field. Your only competition is YOU! The slowest runner might end up winning overall! The winner is the runner that finishes closest to his or her predicted time. Sounds easy, huh? Well, you can leave your Garmin and all other electronic devices at home, because they aren’t allowed on the course. How easy does it sound now?!

This race will have a max capacity of 250 runners and a 1 hour time cut off. All predictions must be 1 hour or less. No GPS, watches, phones, music or headphones will be allowed for the entirety of the race. Any runners found in violation will be disqualified.

Packet Pick-Up will be at Lloyd Clarke Sports on Friday October 9th and Saturday October 10th. You may also pick up your packet on race day at the event.
